“Children are optimists by nature; they believe they can do anything and that tomorrow will be better than today without questioning further…
… But as we grow, that natural optimism gets diluted in our lives with every birthday. Adults fight to make the youngest members of the family understand that they need to be “realistic” and not look at life through rose-colored glasses because they’ll be wrong and will have tons of unsolvable problems. The sad thing is that in many cases, they succeed in convincing tomorrow’s adults.”
